La Charite

Well settled in now, and examining the surroundings and sharing rugby with Aussie visitors.

The rugby world cup kicked off last week and a Rugby mad Aussie boat arrived on the moorings , at the same time  as the Australia v Fiji was starting on the telly.  After much ribbing about the Ashes loss, and the Davis Cup loss, I invited them in watch a rare Aussie victory.  This before the English loss to Wales and before the crunch game coming up against the Aussies next Saturday.  If we lose I will not be able to rib visiting Aussies again, disaster.

The good weather has meant we have been able to get out and about this week and last night we set the alarm for 4 am and had an amazing view of super moon eclipse, no light pollution here so fantastic views for a whole hour, and fried egg sandwiches before going back to bed.

The local market on Wednesday mornings is a little joy, not a massive amount of stalls but high quality local produce.

La Charite is rich historical place and a lot of money has been spent renovating its historic buildings, and on a  beautiful September day extremely pleasant place to stroll around

The renovated interiors are equally impressive.

When leaving the large church in La Charite Teresa spotted this ‘Father Christmas’ character relaxing before his annual rush too build and deliver  all those toys.  Teresa will draw him this week.
